“The Masked Singer” bid farewell to Poodle on the fourth episode of the season after she brought in the least amount of votes for the night.
In this singing competition, celebrity judges try to guess which celebrities are masquerading as animal characters.
Poodle, Alien, Bee, Rabbit and Raven all duked it out with performances but Poodle’s cover of “Time After Time” by Cyndi Lauper failed to bring in enough studio audience votes for her to stay.
When a character is voted off they are forced to take off their mask and reveal which celebrity they are. Throughout the show, the characters give clues as to who they are. Among Poodle’s clues was that she is an advocate for the LGBT community. Judges Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Robin Thicke, along with guest judge Joel McHale, all had various guesses for Poodle. Some believed it was Jillian Michaels behind the mask while others guessed Kathy Griffin or Judge Judy.
However, when the Poodle unmasked it was unveiled that comedian Margaret Cho had been competing.
Jeong was particularly shocked as Cho played his sister on his sitcom “Dr. Ken.”
“You are the reason I am a comedian,” Jeong praised Cho.
“I loved being on ‘The Masked Singer’,” Cho said after the reveal. “It was so exciting to be hidden behind everything. I really am good friends with Ken Jeong. I played his sister on his TV show. I’m really glad that people got to see a different side to who I am. I think the poodle mask was me because I’m fluffy and I’m pink but I’m still a bitch.”
